I have wonderful memories of summer reading programs through the public library. To me, there is nothing better than the icy cold air conditioning at the library and a book bursting with potential.
So, of course, during our first week of summer break, we signed up for our local library's program. I snapped this cute picture of the kids who just plopped right down and started reading. Be still my heart! Then, I interrupted them and took one with them looking at me because their faces really are cute too!
I guess someone else thought they were the picture of childhood reading perfection, because the social media coordinator for the library came over and took some pictures and posted them on Arlington County Library's Facebook page.
We came home and read through all the books. Joseph complained that the books I suggest (usually Newberry Medal winners) are always sad. I enjoyed reading aloud picture books to the girls (Anna's current favorite are the Bitty Baby stories). We're also reading a few chapter books aloud together--we've finished Bird Boy and Chang and the Bamboo Flute. Even Joseph joins in if I'm reading aloud--I love having all 3 of my babies cuddled up while we read. We have now started on E.B. White's Trumpet of the Swan.
